Glennette did a grat job portraying Harriet Tubman’s perspective of life. Harritet grew up a slave working on different plantations and her favorite thing to do was pick the apples; she was curious to know how the apples tasted. One day she bite into one and was harshly punished and that was the day Harriet knew she wanted to be free. She ran away from the planation to a safe house where Underground Railroad members helped her and other slaves find freedom. From there on out Harriet worked to help free slaves using the Underground Railroad and made the apples the symbol of freedom. She even bought a house in Auburn, New york where she planted rows of apple trees and let everyone pick their own. The illustrations in this book are so vivid and brought Tubman’s experiences to life. ( )

The author uses descriptive words to describe the intensity of the situations. It even goes into detail and shows an illustration of how scary it is to experience the punishments distributed during the time.

In my opinion, this is a good book. I like that the author used descriptive language. for example, the author writes, "Then, through the dense forests and chilly swamps, she followed the North Star toward the North and freedom. She was always on the lookout for slave hunters and their bloodhound dogs." This vivid description really shows the reader how dangerous and intense the situation was. I also think that the illustrations enhanced the story. For example, the author uses words to describe the way that Harriet was whipped when she ate an apple, but the reader does not truly understand the severity of the situation without looking at the illustration. The illustration gives the reader an idea of how painful and frightening it is to be whipped. The main idea of the story is that it is possible for a person to overcome adversity in order to live a free and happy life. ( )

AN APPLE FOR HARRIET TUBMAN by Glennette Tilley Turner,illustrated by Susan Keeter is an powerful Children's books/Educational. We all know that Harriet Tubman was the greatest conductor of the Underground Railroad. But did you know she was a Union Army nurse,a scout for the Civil War or that she loved apples? Which are just a few of the things you will learn in this title. Well written in a way young readers can understand,with beautiful illustrations,and engaging characters. A powerful and engaging story from beginning to end. Historical lovers will also enjoy this title. A must read for not only young readers,but for grandchildren,and educators alike. A wonderful teaching tool. Received for an honest review from the publisher.
RATING: 4.5
HEAT RATING: NONE(CHILDREN'S BOOKS)
